Three things run through my mind at this very moment…
ONE, my life as I once knew it will never be the same.
TWO, the person I’m in love with might not even exist.
THREE, the deception that has unfolded before me has the power of life and death.
Sixteen year old, Breanna Davis, has heard the saying; life isn’t always what it seems…well, that saying rings true now more than ever. As horrifying visions appear before her, revealing tragedies that will forever change the fate of those she loves, she realizes that she may be the only person who can stop them from becoming reality.
Amongst the chaos of this new discovery, Bre is faced with a stranger, Eve, who moves in on Bre’s friends and begins to follow her every move. As Eve’s true motives begin to surface, Bre must fight against, not only the visions, but the dangers Eve holds close.
There is another secret kept- Collin, a boy held captive in Bre’s dreams, the boy she is secretly falling in love with but isn’t sure he even exists. As she tries to make it work with Austin, an old friend who could possibly be more, Bre battles against her feelings for Collin.
Bre is faced with an almost impossible decision, to choose her life or follow her destiny. If she doesn’t intercede, people will certainly die. If she does, her own life could be at stake. In the end, if she fails, she’ll lose everything.
Why are dreams so important/relevant to our waking world?
by Jaime Guerard
It is often said that dreams mean something. When you’re asleep your mind can take you away from the chaos of everyday life. The entrapment of this world can put a hold on you, but dreams allow you to escape into another time, to another dimension; and for a moment, you are free to do anything or be anyone in another place entirely.
To dream is to take one’s creative fantasies and mold it into something – even if it’s in your subconscious. If we didn’t ‘dream’ then where would our world be? There have been many times for me when the deepest imaginations come from dreaming. Dreams can be fearful, heartwarming, captivating, but I believe that dreams can come to you when you need them in your life. Dreams are there to remind us to love, push toward goals, hold loved ones close – for our time on earth is numbered. Dreams can guide you into who you should be and what you need to focus on.
Dreams can change your life. For when you’re asleep, your mind is always at work.
